Triple Monitors with GTX 560 SLI

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to run three monitors with GTX 560's in sli or does one need to be used as dedicated physix? If I understand it correctly, Nvidia GTX 5XX cards can only run two displays in 3d surround. Just wanted to clarify things here.

Nvidia Surround (also 3D surround included) is exclusive to 3 monitors which has to be done with A. SLI (2, 3 or 4 cards) or a dual PCB card (one that has 2 GPU's on it) - either wise if you don't want to game on 3 monitors, you can run 3 or 4 monitors on 2 GPU's. to run Nvidia surround you must have 3 monitors identical or with the exact same polarity (its best to have 3 identical monitors). No need for a separate physx card - I don't suggest using 560's or 560ti's for Nvidia surround as the resolution will absolutely kill the GPU's 1GB of Vram unless you get the 2GB versions - i'd recommend getting 570's or 580's.
